Wow, that's an amazing looking bug. Are you sure you didn't paint those wings? Just kidding. :) Excellent sharpness and exposure. The bright spots on the flower petals and in the BG are a little distracting but it's a minor problem. I'm just amazed at the color of the wings. Nice photo. TFS!

A very interesting BUg. I havn't seen one posted on TN before. Well done for doing something different.
Keep it up with the bugs.

Hi, it is the Carpenter Bee (Xylocopa violacea). I commented pictures of these bees several time lately. See:
Anyway, a very nice picture - just some unnecessary blinks... Good work. TFS!

Such a beauty!
I taked some photos of this insect too this weekend, but they didn't get right.
The reflex of the sunlight gives it this "metalic" blue color on the wings.
Very good job!

Excellent exposure. I suspect its one of the carpenter bees. Good sharpness and great POV.
